Favorite memories of the day:

Michael- Sports with the groomsmen, watching Blake and Bailey walk down the aisle, seeing my beautiful wife walk down the aisle, eating, and dancing.

Sarah- Spending time with my wonderful bridesmaids getting ready, having my father walk me down the aisle, being surrounded by my friends and family, having Blake and Bailey be a part of our special day, celebrating with our friends and family, and breaking out some sweet dance moves. Oh and marrying my best friend of course!

Sweetest memory of the day:

Michael- Listening to Sarah's vows.

Sarah- Seeing Michael at the end of the aisle as I cried hysterically.

Funniest memory of the day:

Michael- When Sarah pulled out like 10 pieces of paper for her vows.

Sarah- Uncontrollably ugly crying like Kim Kardashian during our entire ceremony and almost eating it during our first dance.

Advice for future brides:

Just relax and enjoy the day! Make sure you take in every little part of it because it goes by so fast.

Advice for future grooms:

Enjoy every minute of the day, don't get sunburned, and appreciate every moment.  

Thanks goes out to...

Thank you to our wonderful parents for everything they have done.  

Thank you to Penny Varner, Jim, Varner Catherine Varner, Ariel Pomputius, Celeste Pomputius, and Pam Pomputius all for making our dreams become a reality. Y'all worked wonders to help get everything planned and completed! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without all the late hours of decoration preparation.

Thank you to all our amazing friends and family who celebrated our special day with us.
